Campus Life Living & Studying in Dresden

Everything for a good time
Studying & living in Dresden

The benefits of the student life at the Dresden School of Management

Not too big or too small – in Dresden and at our campus the student life is straightforward, versatile, dynamic and colourful.

What makes studying at our campus so popular and appealing? First of all, there are small, intense and personal study groups of 20 to 25 students in a course and around 320 students on campus. This creates intimacy instead of anonymity. Secondly, there are also good conditions to optimise the learning experience: 12 classrooms and one lecture hall. A small, specialised library focussing on hospitality, tourism, business administration with special literature not to be found at the much larger Dresden University library. Adding to the experience of a cosy campus atmosphere is the cafeteria with microwave, coffee, snacks & vending machines, refrigerator, as well as a lobby that is as nice as in a fine hotel. Conclusion: studying at Campus Dresden means studying with a good feeling!

Dresden in 8 Minutes


Well equipped – the library Literature to advance your knowledge

Our small but highly specialised library provides material for our students from the courses Hotel Management, Tourism & Event Management and NEW Marketing Management, including leading literature and journals. We extend the offer continuously, always adapted to the needs of our students. Currently, we have a stock of 475 books and 90 journals.

For more in depth research, we recommend the Saxon State and University Library, which can be reached by public transportation in just 15 minutes from the campus. For our freshmen we organize an orientation – usually during the module “Academic Research & Writing”.

In real life -our central location

Another great reason for your studies at the Campus Dresden: it is very centrally located, right next to the young and trendy district of the Dresden Neustadt. In just 10 minutes you may reach the Altstadt as well.

Where ever you want to go, it is not too far to walk or bike. In case of rainy days you can simply use your semester ticket.



Create Financial Freedom – with a part-time job Numerous lucrative part-time jobs are available

It is worthwhile to gather experience during your studies, as well as earn extra money. There are many profitable side jobs available for our students. 

In Dresden, the number of lucrative side job listings is very large, especially in the tourism, hotel and catering industries. Whether is be as a receptionist in a hotel, as a bartender in a trendy pub scene or as a waitress in a café. Incidentally, our Part-Time Job Fair, which takes place in early October, will provide our students the best chance to make their first contact with hotels, caterers and recruitment agencies in Dresden.

Extremely helpful – the introductory days For the best possible start in Dresden

When you start studying at the Campus Dresden we will take the time to help you feel at home. For our students who come from over 24 countries worldwide, we organise city tours. For our hotel students studying full-time we have fun with an outdoor-day with geocaching. And for our part-time students we offer a self-management workshop and a trip to the Apple Store – to pick up their welcome gift, an iPad. All these activities are designed to help you get to know your fellow classmates quickly.
